13 DECEMBER - 14 FEBRUARY
God has a name. And just to clarify, it’s not God.
This might sound unimportant like it’s just semantics. Rather, it has the potential to radically alter the way we relate to Him.
In ancient writings like the Bible, a name was way more than a label you used to make a dinner reservation or sing up for a spin class or what you use as you file your tax return.
Your name was your identity.
One Old Testament scholar writes, “In the world of the Hebrew Scriptures a personal name was often thought to indicate something essential about the bearer’s identity, origin, birth circumstances, or the divine purpose that the bearer was intended to fulfil.”
Names reveal something of the nature of a person.
